that mitt romney, during the primaries, in answer to a point-blank question from john king, about whether or not we should get rid of fema and send this responsibilities to the states, he said, yes, and then even better, you could go further and privatize it. i mean, the aftermath of a storm, is one in which it needs a coordinated effort between state, federal, and local government, which president obama and governor christie and governor malloy and the other elected officials in the region affected have been doing yeoman's work. i shudder to think about what we would do down here in florida in the aftermath of a storm if we didn't have fema to coordinate everything. >> the koch brothers' super pac -- the koch brothers' super pac, americans for prosperity, said today that they're going to spend $3 million on anti-obama advertising in pennsylvania and michigan, all the way up until election day. now, six days, five days, a lot of impact there. what's your take on this? i mean, is this going to have an impact? are we going to see the full throat of citizens united down the stretch? >> i'm s
in that primary debate that john king moderated where he was asked specifically about fema. he said anything that the federal government does that can be transferred to the states are better yet to the private sector. that's the right direction. so it leaves open the question of exactly what role he sees for fema. fema has been a controversial agency such as their delivery of services after katrina. however it's pretty popular when it comes in and helps and picks up the costs in the aftermath of disasters like this one. so i think it's a question that i would expect governor romney feel that he needs to say some words about. maybe today about what role he would see for the federal government for fema if he were president in natural disasters like this one. >> all this goes back to what mitt romney said in one of the early primary debates. i want to play that now. >> every time you have an occasion, you take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. we
it turn now to our chief national correspondent john king, who is in southwest of me, in the town of cincinnati, ohio. so, john, it is very good to see you. i've been wanting to talk to you about this for a while now. so mitt romney is there, going to be there later on. and he is in -- going to be in ohio. was in wisconsin earlier. the latest cnn poll of polls shows that obama is up by 3 points. so take a look at that. what can we read, if anything, into those numbers? is that sort of within the margin of error or not? is it enough to -- for the obama campaign to feel safe or no? >> well, it is close enough, don, for the romney campaign to overcome an election day if they have a significant turnout. a significant intensity, a significant energy event. one of the things that is interesting about ohio, some of the other swing states have gone up and down. the president was up 3, then tide, then governor up was up 1 or 2 or the president's lead has fluctuated. ohio has been steady throughout the general election season. if you go back to april, we knew governor romney would be the no
. >> that's what he told john king. he went on. you can go even further. send it back to the private sector. that's even better. i'm not sure what he means by that. instead of thinking in the federal budget what should we keep, what should we cut? we should ask the question what should we keep. >> including disaster relief? governor romney said this. we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral in my view for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well we'll be all dead and gone before it's paid off. it make nos sense at all. so he is talking specifically about disaster relief that he wants to modify the role of f mechlt a. >> i think he's right in modifying the role of fema. the states have the power now. they should be given more power. >> does that mean cutting fema? >> let me give you one more example. it wasn't fema that weep went to to get $20 billion to rebuild lower manhattan. it was congress. and -- >> we're talking specifically about fema. >> it has a role of play. >> it
. >> it's worth repeating the debate. john king asked if disaster relief would be better handled by the states. quote, absolutely. any time you have occasion to send it back to the states, that's the right direction. yesterday changing his story a bit. >> yeah. you know, when we screwed up in newspapers, we would call them clarifications, not corrections. this has taken them 48 hours to come up with a statement of the status quo. states take the lead. fema gets the funding it needs. it wasn't just that back in the debate he said states should take the lead on everything. he said that borrowing money for fema was immoral. it was a moral issue. that that question was of great immoral value to him in looking after hurricane victims. and maybe that's one of the reasons why if you look at the poll numbers, we just got some interesting poll numbers from "the washington post" yesterday, 78% of americans approve of the president's handling. of this disaster. and it's about half that level for mitt romney. in a very close election. when you've got an incumbent getting 78% approval for any
. >> during the g.o.p. primaries there is a clip of him talking to cnn's john king about what we should do about financial issues with fema. >> stephanie: yeah, we have that. >> every time you have an and an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. instead of thinking in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask ourselves the opposite question. what should we keep? >> yes because in an emergency the local officials would like to do everything themselves. >> stephanie: he'll find some awful way to politicize this. >> a lot more news coming up. the hurricane is the top story and will stay that way (vo) brought to you by metlife. stay tuned for the answer.

to call cbs the right wing, the john birch people, the color broadcasting system or the communist broadcasting system because once it went from 50 minute news to a half-hour cbs recovering martin luther king every night, turning him into a new superstar and putting their cameras on bull connor's mad dogs in birmingham and water hoses on peaceful protesters and the like. and so one of cronkite's great legacies is that cbs dot in the mode for promoting the civil rights movement, serious news, and gave king such a huge platform. and he loved lyndon johnson. he has an unusual relationship with lbj because he thought what johnson's great society was doing was tremendous, particularly to civil rights acts of '64 and '65. people like roger mudd started cutting their teeth and covering filibusters on civil rights on capitol hill of alike. gant -- dan rather did great work in the south. the openness of the bureau covering civil rights. many might have forgotten named nelson benton. they would do incredible broadcasts. but i would say beyond jim-crow he was a child of the great depression.
